The cross was put up on a hill east of the Ķegums cemetery. The place was not initially intended to be a hill of the cross, but a venue for the gatherings of Christians as there was no church in Ķegums. In the course of time, more crosses were placed on the hill, and now a cross procession is held here in June each year. Healers believe this to be an ancient sacred site.
